Just picked one up. As with all Otterbox cases, it feels very substantial. Feels like a $35 case, unlike it's Griffin and InCase competitors (IMO. InCase used to be at the top of my list but I haven't used them since a couple bad 3G cases.) the rubber is thick, the plastic is thick, feels like plastic-coated metal but is still easy to remove and install. Power button is very stiff with the case on, not sure if it will change. Flaps at the bottom are thick enough to endure opening and closing for at least a year. The cut isn't absolutely perfect (some edges left over from manufacturing), so I sent a request to have the rubber replaced. I think this case will be here to stay for a while.
